The first picture may looked real but the second batch pictures really look photoshopped. Look at the materials of those skirts, it just doesnt look real at all.

Most definitely photoshoped. Unless they've recently invented some sort of magical fabric that mysteriously fades into nothing. >>; Besides, even if those are "prints", the lines of the legs shouldn't exactly match up with the lines on the print, right?

Um, I like that keyboard. I assume it comes with the obscenly-large mouse as well, or is that an add-on?

The pictures are obviously photoshopped. The cops would mostly likely disaprove of such skirts if they saw one (students would not be able to wear one either) so it's obvious that such things would not be worn, especially indoors like the grocery store. Sorry, but, unfortunatley, not true.

And...how would that be sexism (I hope people talk about this) unless the girl was forced to do it? And, still, that's not sexism, but an entirely different matter. Dimpy clothing's not sexism.

They never were popular to begin with, as they don't exist! Those are photoshopped pictures.

Apparently the pictures come from porn magazines.

According to that site, the skirts are not photoshopped, they are real, but are not see through. The panties/asses are drawn onto the skirt. I'm sure it is hard to tell with just some pictures though.

If these skirts are a fad in Japan, it is probably just a small undeground kind of thing-kind of like nevada-tan. I promise that the average japanese girl will not wear these things(whether they are really see through or not)-kind of like bondage gear in the US.

And I seriously have no idea why some idiots here think these things are sexist? No one is forcing people to wear these things. In fact it is more sexist to say that people shouldn't be wearing because you are defining how females are and are not allowed to dress. Just because you are conservative/jealous/offended, doesn't mean others are, and the people who wear these things definitely don't seem to be (if it is real).

I think girls AREN'T that stupid to show off their underwear if it ever occured though lol.

Sorry nadesico, but some of us have lives and can't keep up with all the hoaxes around.

And nicochanr3, in all fairness, I did write IF, which means I never said it exists. I simply said that IF it exists, then it is not mainstream.

There are a lot of weird things in japan that would be completely out of the ordinary in the USA, don't get mad if people are a little naive.

I know I shouldn't answer to this, but I am sorry, I DO have a life and yet I am aware of hoaxes, you can keep your unfriendly comments for you. Do you know me? I don't think so.If you want to believe in rubbish, please do so.
I am not coming to this thread anymore anyway.

no that WAS real. The Economist is not in the habit of reporting on "fake" stories.

USED PANTIES
Police in Japan are trying to curb an unsavoury trade. In early September, three business men stocked around 90 vending machines in outer Tokyo with used underwear "guaranteed to have been worn by a Japanese schoolgirl." Each garment sells for about $29.
After searching the rule books, the police have finally charged the three entrepreneurs with violating the Antique Dealings Law, which stipulates that dealers need a license. Used panties as antiques? The police say that some of the underwear was bought from second hand dealers. The trio may also be charged with swindling, if it can be shown that the panties on sale had not really been worn by female students.

Panty machines are pretty rare nowadays, though. There are still some around, but they're pretty hard to find and are generally in places where lots of doinks hang out. One of doinkies' LJ friends in Japan searched high and low for a panty vending machine one night, just to take a picture of one, and it took a while before she could find one. They may have been more common back in 1993 when that article was written though.

Used underwear clearance sale!

February 19th, 2004 by Lee
A while a go I reported that the Tokyo metropolitan government was going to implement a ban on the selling of used underwear. Well, from today’s reports, it seems that the bill will be submitted next Wednesday.

After its introduction, those caught selling underwear previously worn by anybody under 18 could be fined up to 500,000 yen (2,500 pound). And those found buying such products could get hit with a slightly reduced (but still hefty) fine of 300,000 yen (1,500 pound). Even those merely providing space for any such transaction will be similarly punished.

Whilst I knew this day would eventually come, it’s with a heavy heart that I am now forced to bow out of this most lucrative of markets. So from today it’s sale time - everything must go. As stocks become low, I will sell to the highest bidder. And up until the end I will stick by my tried and trusted policy.

No stain means no gain. So the more soiled, the more you must toil. Bid away!

You can photoshop things to make them look absolutely real, get a decent graphic artist, done.

Aside from that, what kind of woman would wear those anyway? Frankly, given the problems with gropers on Japanese public transports, only a complete retard would wear those. It's like a "please sexually harass me!" sign.

Yep. they passed a law about those things last year. No more new or used underwear machines are around (except for in the red light areas) and the shops have been closed up.

Girls did it as a quick fix for money, and I don't know why people bought them.

Japan has been trying to clean up it's "image" with crackdowns on the sex industry, especially in Shinjuku. Of course, this stuff is still around, they've just migrated from the bigger areas.

As for the skirts, yea, those are fake. Although, sometimes, they'll actually make up and coming idols wear completely see-through outfits and go through town doing normal things to incite some sort of reaction from every day folks. Things like that are popular for comedy shows such as LonHa and MechaIke.

I'm writing this as a spoiler because it may gross out some people...
Back in the late 1990's, eBay was a popular source of used panties. Some "girls" sold them for quick cash so they can go to college. Later, eBay put a stop to the practice, indicating that all garments must be washed before being sold.

I watched a video where a bunch of guys bought new panties from a nearby store, along with cans of tuna. They'd pour the tuna water from the cans onto the garments, rub it in with their fingers, throw the garments into a plastic bag, and then they sold them off a web page. These items sold for over $50 each, which included a customized love letter supposedly written by the girl who wore the panties.

Despite the fact that the circumstances (the pervesion) are so disgusting, there's something really fitting about disgusting old men being taken advantage of. :whistling:
